Could you please check my site and suggest what I can do to improve the Pagespeed Insights score.

    Hey Konstantin,

    Hope you're doing well :slight_smile:

    I had a look at your site and here are some suggestions for improving the speed.

    First thing is to take care of the image reports.
    Google page speed test has two reports for image optimization.

    1. Losslessly compressing - This one's is telling that image can be optimized, that's what smushing takes care of and there are no such reports on your site.

    2. Compressing and resizing - This tells us that image is larger than its actual HTML holder.

    The second one is what's shown in your results and that's because your theme is loading images larger than it's HTML holder, for example on your homepage "Über mich" section there is 1024x967 thumbnail loaded but the actual HTML holder of that image is only 348x329 so the image is resized with CSS to fit in that holder.

    Unfortunately this is not something Smush can deal with since the theme code is written in the way to call the larger image, and even though the image is compressed google doesn't like loading image larger than its holder, so this is something you need to check with the theme devs.

    Next thing you should do is go to Humminbird > Minification panel and in there tweak the minification settings in order to minify and combine your files for best results.
    Please note that files react differently when minified or when their loading position is changed so this process can't be automatic and it requires manually setting it up for best results.

    After that is done you may want to install a caching plugin to further improve the results.

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.
